The wheels are 60mm EZ Hawgs by Landyachtz. I haven’t experienced any wheelbite, however I still haven’t pushed it that hard. I might get some Powell G-Slides.

The trucks are small TKPs by Neil Blender’s brand, the Heated Wheel. Replicated after the roller skate trucks they used in the 60s. You can even experiment with aftermarket bushings like RipTide.


Head Type: Allen

I chose countersunk because I want to ride this barefoot and not be bothered by the bolts. Allen bolts because I always somehow strip phillips head. Allen allows for more leverage and less likely to strip. More on skate hardware here.
